Taylor's - Scottish 10K 2024
British Thyroid Foundation
by

I will be taking part in the Scottish 10k run on August the 18th 2024 to raise money for the British Thyroid Foundation. When my son Bryden was 7 days old the doctor did a heel prick test in the hospital and he was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid (congenital hypothyroidism). As we found out about Bryden's condition very early it meant he got the treatment he required very early on. He takes one tablet every morning and this ensures he can live a happy, healthy, and fulfilling life. Bryden will be 2 in September and is thriving thanks to the help of Govan Children’s hospital.

As some of you are aware I’ve been diagnosed with an overactive thyroid and because of that I’ve also been diagnosed with Graves’ disease and thyroid nodules! So I’m raising money to allow the charity to help other people like myself and offer support and advice to others. The symptoms affect my day to day life so if I can have the opportunity to raise money for the charity for more research and hope someone else doesn’t have to go through what I’ve had to go through during my diagnosis. I have never ran in my life and have only recently started running after work, I’ve set myself a challenge ..read more

Treatments for thyroid eye disease
British Thyroid Foundation

The active stage of thyroid eye disease (TED) is when there is inflammation in the tissues around the eyes. Symptoms can fluctuate during this period, and can last for just a few months or up to two years. The purpose of treatments in the active stage is to reduce inflammation, improve symptoms and protect your eyes. After about two years the TED has usually ‘burnt out’ and become inactive. At that stage, treatments tend to focus on restoring the function and appearance of the eyes as much as possible.  The treatments that are available will therefore depend on the stage of the disease an ..read more

by
2w ago
I decided to challenge myself while raising as much money as possible for the British Thyroid Foundation by completing 2000 burpees and 50k of running in 10 days. I wanted to push myself as living with a thyroid condition myself, I know how hard it is to move and have enough energy for daily tasks let alone working out, I wanted to show that it is possible but it is also a lot of hard work, determination, and sometimes pushing your own limits.    If you would like to donate please visit her JustGiving page.  ..read more

Bianca knew nothing about congenital hypothyroidism when her baby daughter was diagnosed. She told us: My newborn daughter was very jaundiced, always sleeping and I had to wake her up for feeds. She also had problems with her stomach. Since we’ve established the right dosage of levothyroxine for her, she’s been a changed girl. My challenge of 11,000+ steps a day during March wasn’t easy but I had a lot of support from my family who also came out and joined me  Bianca raised £161 for our work Bianca and her husband Biancas baby daughter ..read more
